Job Interview Question

This dilemma was once used as part of a job application.

You are driving along in your two-seater car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect man/woman you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?

You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer.  He said: “I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams.”

Never forget to think outside the box.

Looking for other box jokes, I found this one, which has no connection to boxes that I can see, but I loved it anyway:

Q. The Bay of Bengal is in which state?

    Wah-wah-wahhhhhhh! I almost busted a gut on that last answer — I wish I were even close to being that quick-witted!

    🙂 Hi T Bud ~~ I would hope to get the job. I had a dream sort of like that last night. Prophecy?

    Here are best wishes and prayers for Viv and the family.

    Clever bloke, but I would not give the young woman a lift. I would call 911 for the old woman and give my friend a lift. You would be happy if you were the old friend. No problem here, however, my old friends all have cars. Dianne

    I loved this!!!! I tend to never think out of the box!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
